Learning C#

Post by ninjamonkey » Thu Jul 07, 2011 9:22 am

Hey guys,


I was wondering, do you guys have any suggestions for learning C#? I have C++ background from my major. I want to start leaning it so I could start programming games. From what I have seen there doesn't seem too much of a difference; just some syntax differences. Your suggestions are much appreciated.

I thought most games were coded in C++.

The engines are programmed in c++, but the games are programmed in c#.

I studied C++ and C# in university. C++ is used more for gaming. C# is actually a microsoft updated version of C. Learn C++. Much more useful. C# sucks.

I've already learning C++ programming. Not necessarily for game purposes though. I've learned it to write programs that could solve engineering problems. But, anyway, unity doesn't support C++. I believe the engine itself is programmed in it, but the scripts are either C#, Java, or Boo.

I did some research and found that unity would be the easiest way to write a game of my own. Unless you guys have a better engine to use that does support C++ and is free. That is the deal breaker-- has to be free.

Anyway, a good programmer should know both C++ and C#...
